  • Publication number: 20130123610
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for obtaining force versus deformation data for tissue in vivo includes a displacement system that cycles an anatomical member, for example, a foot, repeatedly through a loading/unloading cycle while using a gated imaging procedure such as magnetic resonance imaging to obtain the deformation response of tissues in the foot. The imaging is conducted during the loading/unloading cycle, such that a rate-dependent deformation response is imaged.
